Happy 15th Birthday Florida Skin Center

This month Florida Skin Center is celebrating its 15 year Anniversary. 


   15 years ago Dr. Badia opened the door of Florida Skin Center as a new graduate and new to South West Florida. Since then, Dr. Badia has become a pillar in the community. She stays very active in community and is always looking to give back. Every year Florida Skin Center host events such as Children's day and Hero's Day where skin checks are performed at no cost. On par with Dr Badia's philanthropic ways, Florida Skin Center will donate $15,000 in the community to celebrate the 15 year Anniversary. Three local organizations will receive equal donations of $5,000 and include Trafalgar Middle School who will use the funds to put up a sun shade for protection, Lee PACE for girls, and Veterans of Foreign Wars Lehigh Acres Post.

   Over the years Florida Skin Center has grown to include 2 office locations in both Fort Myers and Cape Coral, with a third location opening this summer. Dr. Badia has also added 3 Physician Assistants (PA's) to her staff to help accommodate patients.
   We would like to take the time to thank each and every patient for their loyalty to Florida Skin Center, and for letting us take care of your skin care needs!

The Old Bar Soap is Not the Answer for Facial Cleansing

 While it might seem like a good idea to get your face “squeaky clean” by using a bar of soap for cleansing, it can actually wreak havoc on your skin.

    Bar soap is very drying and can remove your natural oils, proteins, fats and ceramides from the skin. A common misconception is that getting rid of all the oil is good, but in reality your skin has its own fine balance. Drying the skin too much sends a signal to the body to produce more oil which can produce more breakouts.

   Bar soap also will change the pH or acidic balance of your skin. This can cause the protective barrier of the skin to become weakened. This can cause your skin to become dry, red, and/or itchy. When skin becomes dehydrated, wrinkles and pore size also become more evident.

  Treat your face to any Skin Medica or SkinCeuticals Facial cleanser the month of July and get 25% off.
